EXHIBITION: One Day For Sight 2016 (Festival Theatre Foyer)

Photographers have fantastically tuned vision, coupled with a strong sense of design, and so the Red Photographic Challenge has once again been designed to bring focus onto a gift that photographers often take for granted, their eye sight. 

On October 13th photographers from across Australia took a photo that represented ‘Red’ to them. A panel of judges selected the finalists whose work will feature in a photographic exhibition at both the Adelaide Festival Centre and the Adelaide Airport.

This one day challenge raises funds for Sight For All and produces an exhibition of pictures that tells a striking story.

EXHIBITION: 1000 Forms of Fear 

Ian Haig

curated by Carolyn Kavanagh

Has fear become the zeitgeist of our era? We fear aging, disease, disfigurement and death as well as an ever expanding list of phobias. Cultivated by media and politics our current culture of fear is all encompassing, from fear of terrorism, migration, pollution and pandemics to climate change. 1000 Forms of Fear examines the aesthetics of fear through the practices of four Australian contemporary artists.

The final installation in the 1000 Forms of Fear series. Ian Haig’s practice explores the darker side of life, with a brand of body horror that he says is "premised on putting bodily reality back into the hygienic and sterile context of the gallery".
